  1. Add support for azurite as local storage emulator to storage explorer tool

    On linux the only option to emulate azure storage is the open source project azurite. Unfortunately this is not supported as local emulator for azure storage explorer. This way it is nearly impossible to develop and test storage locally. Please add support for azurite in storage explorer tool on linux.

  2. Improve file search functionality in Active blobs

    Improve search functionality in Active blobs. I would like to be able to search files where it does not rely on case-sensitive and allows me to search by extension. (.png, .jpg, etc.) Currently, if I was to type ".png" in the search bar, it will return nothing.

  4. Storage Explorer vs. MAX_path issue (260 character) when double clicking files

    Azure Storage Explorer creates two weird GUID folders within each other under temp before downloading the file including the folder structure containing the file.

    This appears to be an issue often for users. Why have to folders with long GUIDs that only leave limited space for the folder structure and filename?

    Users double click files in Azure Storage Explorer and expect the files to open in either Adobe Acrobat or Word, but nothing happens as the path exceed the allows 260 chars within Windows

  7. Storage Explorer v0.8.12 breaks if HOMEDRIVE offline

    V0.8.12 update has broken Storage Explorer for me with an "Unknown Error" when starting. As the error refers to "P:/" I suspect it is something to do with the HOMEDRIVE environment variable that points to that drive. This is a network drive enforced upon my by group policy but which I never use. As I am currently engaged in trial Azure development I generally have to work offline from the corporate network due to proxy server and firewall restrictions we are not yet ready to lift.

    I am working with our internal support to try and get GP exceptions but…

  9. I would like to feedback Microsoft to add new feature on ADLS Gen2 to allow to add Group using Group name.

    I would like to feedback Microsoft to add new feature on ADLS Gen2 to allow to add Group using Group name. Because now we can use only object id which it is difficult to maintain. It is very good if we can both object id and group name.

  10. Proper error handlong on download in storage explorer

    Right now I get "Failed to Download 'xxxx'".

    1) Provide information on WHY it failed so I might be able to do something about it.
    2) Allow me to easily retry - preferably by selecting one/all-some failed downloads in a download group.

  11. Improve Search Performance for exact matches

    We are currently using Azure Media Services which creates a new blob container for each asset. We currently have 40,000 distinct assets. When attempting to search from the blob container level using the exact container id it can take 10+ minutes. This seams to be searching for content within the containers as well. In contrast if we search Azure Media Services Explorer by id it is instant. It would be good to be able to have more control over how it searches

  12. Azure Storage Explorer should be either customizable or open-source (again)

    To build hybrid apps, many 3rd party applications need extensive parts of the storage explorer. Thus, it was great to have it open source (deco), but now the closed source version does not apparently permit extensive UI-configuration (branding, visibility of parts etc.) to enable reasonable 3rd party use.

  13. Allow transfer pause/throttle

    It would be great if Azure Storage Explorer have an option to pause
    selected transfer (upload/download) operations. Currently, v1.6.1 allows the user to 'Cancel' or 'Cancel All' transfers. Ideally, if there was another set of buttons like 'Pause' and 'Pause All'.

    It would be even better if the configuration allowed transfer throttling. Let say to limit the bandwidth used by the Storage Explorer during transfer.

  14. Azure Storage Explorer: bulk change access tier

    Azure Storage Explorer allows me to change the tier of a single file by right click and select new tier.

    ex: change from hot to archive, or archive to hot etc.

    I'd like the ability to change the access tier multiple files at once, or a whole folder of files.

  15. Expose Storage Explorer via custom URL

    It would be great to have an online version of Storage Explorer, but accessible outside the portal.

    So, I can give a business user access to their storage account, without having to install Storage Explorer, and without having them touch the Azure portal. They would login to Azure with their credentials, and be presented with just the storage explorer. This would use the same credentials they logged in with to present them with all storage accounts they have access to.

  16. Option to customize number of file views per pagination.

    Can we have a setting option that allows the user to set how many files they would like to view per pagination? Currently, it is defaulted at showing 1 to 100. I would like to be able to change 100 to 1000 if I wanted to.

  17. Add compare functionality to Azure Storage Explorer

    Would be useful to be able to compare storage accounts/containers/folders/files and choose to sync either way or selectively. Doesn't need to show differences internal to the files just that one is different to another and meta such as newer or older, size, etcetera.

  18. Remove "Storage accounts" from the navigation tree

    Navigation tree in the app can be simplified by removing "Storage Accounts" child of the "Subscription" parent and move all items of the context menu to the subscription parent

  19. Azure Storage Explorer - View Blobs by Date

    I use an old tool called Azure Storage Explorer 6 and it displayed all the blobs within a container without any subfolders by date. I use the logging available in an Azure web app to log to blob storage and this creates all sorts of subfolders so it is difficult to find the logs.

    Can this functionality be built into the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer?
